I agree, there are wholesalers and others buying up everything they can get there hands on and this cuts the items that the Feds have no use for in thier buying spree.

The factors combine for the effect we have now in the retail market.

I can’t imagine that the feds are buying all the rimfire but I can imagine that 9mm and Nato rounds are being purchased in stupid quantaties.

Obama himself said that he would use whatever means necessary to control guns in the US. DHS buying up vast supplies of ammunition is just the start. The next shoe to drop will be the EPA cracking down on lead bullets and gun powder.

Last I heard, the feds were buying ammo in calibers that are not really used by LEO. .30 carbine, 30-30, .45LC, .22LR, 30-06. Strange...

Yep you are right about that. I saw this coming. Don’t ask me how it was just a feeling. Sometimes I am prescient about about certain things and as I get older and hopefully wiser I learn to act on my “feelings”. Call it a disturbance in the force. LOL.

This run on guns and ammo is not letting up like the ‘94 run did.

That's because Clinton understood what Obastard doesn't: You have to tack into the wind once in a while. Obastard is just keeping the rudder pushed to the left, no matter what, and he is oblivious. If this keeps up, it *will* lead to a war. And the Gubmint side of the equation is going to need every round they can get, because the numbers aren't on their side.

Regardless of what happens in the movies, the first thing that happens when SHTF is the "liberation" of firearms and ammunition.

I'm not really worried about it, except I have curtailed my target practice unless I can reload.

I know a guy that owns the sole liquor store in a small village which is popular vacation destination seasonally. He buys liquor in $250k shipments. If I had a gun store, I think I’d do the same -what would it be worth to have that kind of stock, if for no other reason than to get people in the door for potential impulse buys.

Oh?

Is there a limited supply; or will the ammo companies just keep making as much as they can sell?

Starving only works if there is a limit.

Unless the GOV'T passes a law that says IT gets first dibs on it all, then we civilians WILL get all the ammo WE want; too!

Congress simply needs to declare it all surplus and sell it to the public in 1000 round blocks.

Sit on what ammo you have. You already know how to shoot.

You’ll miss the fun of shooting, of course, but you’ll also have your rounds. Then just add to it as you can.

there's always a reason behind this stuff....

I wonder how the gangbangers are going to get along with ammo?.....where do they get their ammo?

I haven't went to the range in nearly 2 months myself.

Just went today, for the first time since last fall prior to deer hunting. Of course, we finally had a beautiful, warm, sunny weekend as well as today (Monday) for the first time in the last 9 weeks.

My buddies and I haven't been shooting much.
Kind of waiting for this crap to settle out.
We were going once or sometimes twice a month, just for practice, fun and bragging rights about our marksmanship, LOL.
Good fun, but the ammo situation is just too crazy right now, it's a shame.

How useful are those calibers for summary executions? That may be one reason...
